RoseannRoseann – Registered Dental Hygienist (Part Time on Thursdays)
Roseann has been a hygienist for over 35 years and loves what she does! She graduated from Cuyahoga Community College in 1982, where she was awarded “The Golden Scaler” award for “Miss Congeniality.” She has been part of our team at Shaia Dental Care since December 2013, when Dr. Shaia bought the practice she was part of at that time.Roseann loves being part of a practice where one knows as soon as they walk through the door that it is neat, clean and organized! She loves that her patients often become friends, and she believes that friends should always be treated with the utmost respect. She tries to be gentle, caring, understanding and thorough even when she has limited time with patients. Over the years, Roseann has witnessed Dr. Shaia’s work continue to be top quality with the highest craftsmanship! Dr. Shaia even restored two of her husband’s front teeth that had 40-year-old crowns before their daughter’s wedding. The restoration is so immaculate you probably would not even be able to tell they are crowned! If she ever needs her own dental work, she would not hesitate to trust her care to the skilled hands of Dr. Shaia. She actually thinks Dr. Shaia makes it hard on her and the other hygienists because it is difficult to tell if a tooth is a crown or natural! Roseann has been married to Dennis since 1975, and they have two married children who also have children of their own: Kyle (Rachel) Harrison and Bennett and Rheanna (Mark) Carver. Roseann loves organic gardening and has three 4’x 12′ plots at her church community garden, one of which is for herbs. Out of the three plots, 90% of the harvest is donated to the Parma Hunger Center. She also has a 12’x 24′ garden at home and a yard surrounded by flowers! In the summer, she forgets she even has an inside to be in! She loves and cherishes the time she spends with her husband, children and their families. She also loves to craft, read, hike, bike and tent camp. She does not sleep much!Roseann’s own words: “THANKS TO OUR PATIENTS! Without you, your respect, trust, belief in us and your friendships, we wouldn’t have a practice. P.S. Keep on brushing, flossing and using mouth wash, and for many, use water flosser.”
